    This way you will only use warlock mechanics for combat.

    Use your Opportunity procc for better bloom selfheals
    Searing vitality buffs your hp for 5 mins after using it
    Pillaging Stone steals stats off someone for 5 mins stackingx5 - So you appply them once and refresh it only with one use.

    If The Archon Stuff is too much micromanagement:

    Only add Necrosis to your dots. It will act like a Warlock dot. Ignore pets as they will be useless with that little points spent in a pet soul anyway.

    If you have Frostkeeper, replace Chloro with 4 Frostkeeper.

    Hmm depends on how complicated and sweaty you want it.

    Some basic ones would be

    #show Devouring Shadows
    suppressmacrofailurs
    cast @gtae Devouring Shadows
    cast Devouring Shadows

    @ground target area effect lets you take your target as center of area efects when they are placed with that yellow mandala.

    suppressmacrofailures just blocks screen messeges caused by the macro. Always put that in


    Contaminate, Entropic Veil and Power Drain are toggles. They will untoggle when the requirement is missing.

    cast [notactive] Contaminate

    is very basic for warlock. As soon as you have enough charge, it ensures you have your +30% for dots active.
    It needs to be active while applying dots.
    So having it macro ed with Persist, Void Barrage and Deatly Pall goes a long way. Maybe even all your dots. On level 62 and 66 you will be able to apply multiple dots withe fewer gcds- until then it stays piano style.



    Sweaty:


    - Think about making a Contaminate combination with all dots ..

    - One toggle will replace another toggle with compareable effect.

    Entropic Veil gives + 10% damage to all abilities and +10% chloro healing (bloom)

    It's not viable for dots but makes sence to give that 10% to abilities which are important but do not benefit from Contaminate:
    Bloom, Consuming Agony, Draining Bolt etc

    #show Consuming Agony
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast [notactive] Entropic Veil
    cast Consuming Agony

    And a default macro like

    #show Draining Bolt
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast [shift] Draining Bolt
    cast [notactive] Contaminate
    cast Void Bolt
    cast Draining Bolt
    cast Withering Vine

    Thise two could make your first little macro machine.
    (i don't use shift modifyer myself but maybe you like them) One macro press will activate one ability in there. If the highest is not available, the next in line gets the priority.
    You could ofc also combine Draining Bolt with Entropic Veil to emphasise it's damage. Contaminate really only affects damage that is not dealing all it's damage instantly.
    So yes, try out Contaminate with Devouring Shadows.


    Those charge toggles consume and block charge gain from the affected spell type.
    So you want to sacrifice some casts (Void Bolt with active Contaminate) to keep your charge up.

    Remember that buffs on yourself; Empowered Darkness, Sacrifice Life: Damage, Contaminate etc need to be active BEFORE applying dots in order to buff them.

    -> Contaminate and sacrifice life will stack, Empowered Darkness is incompatible with sacrifice life and will untoggle Contaminate.
